Listen, your girl loves a solid workout just as much as anyone else. But given the option to exercise or to sleep in an additional 45-ish minutes, I’m obviously opting for the snooze button. The answer to my sleeping-yet-still-want-to-sweat qualm: fitness apps.
If you want to do a quick 15-minute workout in the middle of the night because that’s when it’s most convenient for you, there’s an app for that. No signups or gymtimidation here, ya’ll.
Plus, with all the free time we have now, lots of fitness apps are running special promos, deals, and free trials to provide some ~extra~ endorphins. Whether you’re an athlete or just looking for an extra butt plump, we’ve sifted through the best apps out there. Behold our favorites.

Fit Body App
Anna Victoria is one of the leading Instagram “influencers” who wants to make it as easy as possible for you to workout. She offers three different kinds of workouts through her app: Tone, which features strength and cardio, Shred, which focuses on high-intensity body-weight only exercises, and Sculpt, which is designed for gaining strength at the gym.
She also offers members-only Facebook pages and newsletters for FBG girls to connect with other FBG girls as an option to trudge through the workouts and meal plans together.

If you’re new to this whole fitness thing:
Emily Skye, an Australian-based fitness model turned personal trainer created plans that allow you to work out from home or venture to a gym. Each plan is comprised of five new workouts a week. Bonus fact: After Emily’s first pregnancy, she actually used her own app to start working out again—and documented it all on her Instagram here.

If the main reason you don’t workout is because you have zero time:
The rumors are true: These workouts only take seven—yes, seven!!!—minutes. But in the words of my savior Britney Spears, you gotta work, b*tch… even if it’s only seven minutes. The app’s creators say each workout is meant to provide the maximum benefit in the shortest time possible (so yeah, it won’t be easy—but it will be over soon). Set your goal and fitness level to optimize results for the quickest, most effective workout you could ask for.
